Shallow staging...

Was at the track yesterday and I cut a perfect light... I had the GoPro on so I thought I would look at the video... Not the easiest to see, but i think you can get an idea of just how far the car actually travels before you break the starting beams if you stage shallow... so for what it's worth... LOL

Thanks! It's the 3rd one I've managed in the Flex... No idea why, but for some reason I'm able to cut really good lights with the big girl...

What size are the front wheels? Seems like it has a good bit or roll-out

I noticed that too... more than I would have thought... however the Flex does have some tall tires... the tires are 29.1" tall... (AWD so front and back have to be the same)
